Susan Cain, author of Quiet, brings us her newest book,
Bittersweet: How Sorrow and Longing Make Us Whole.
Her book, Quiet, talks about The Power of Introverts ~In Quiet, Susan Cain argues that we dramatically undervalue introverts and shows how much we lose in doing so. She charts the rise of the Extrovert Ideal throughout the twentieth century and explores how deeply it has come to permeate our culture. She also introduces us to successful introverts—from a witty, high-octane public speaker who recharges in solitude after his talks, to a record-breaking salesman who quietly taps into the power of questions. Passionately argued, impeccably researched, and filled with indelible stories of real people, Quiet has the power to change how we see introverts and, equally important, how they see themselves.
The new book, Bittersweet, has earned the editor's of Amazon's "Best Books of 2022
So Far". Bittersweetness is a tendency to states of longing, poignancy, and sorrow; an acute awareness of passing time; and a curiously piercing joy at the beauty of the world. It recognizes that light and dark, birth and death—bitter and sweet—are forever paired.
